Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: 5/24/72 , and the Lyceum run

Dudley Dead;
I had Lyceum on an old cassette tape back in the day and the one thing I took away was The Stranger/Two Souls.
At the time I was not completely sure if it wasn't filler but much later realized it was part of the set.
That song just haunted me for a long time when ever I had the "I am all alone blues" that song would come to mind.
I do remember contrasting that 72 show with Madison, Wisconsin FEB-73 both of which were often in my rotating top ten car cassette tapes and just thinking how different the two shows were.
PLUS-For the Lyceum and much of Europe 72-- I liked hearing Pig in the harmonies...even as his lead vocals were getting rough around the edges and his turn up in the rotation took longer to come around. His voice in the mix was American Beauty in my ears.
